We live in a competitive world. If you want to get results, you have to make sure that you are seen in one way or another. The right timing is crucial.
Competition comes in many forms and is increasingly cutthroat in every way. You are competing for a new job with tons of other candidates. Or if you have a certain idea and want to convince others, you will need to have certain qualities to make it happen. In short, it is important in this society to be able to sell yourself, figuratively speaking, as well as possible.
Because if you can’t sell yourself well, someone else will run off with what you had in mind for yourself. Being able to sell yourself well requires a certain amount of courage. You have to dare to say and do things. You will need a certain flair to yourself and/or your ideas to show.
You create results yourself
When you have mastered selling yourself, you will convince (potential) employers, friends, and even partners with ease. This will give them a positive feeling about you.
And if you play the game right, you will even pass people with better qualifications than you with the greatest of ease. It is ultimately the feeling that the others have with you that in 99% of cases is the decisive factor in choosing you.
When you can sell yourself well, it doesn’t mean that you speak highly of yourself. It’s not about bragging. It’s about knowing the right psychological techniques that will help you convince people in an honest, powerful way that you are the one they should choose.
Why don’t most people sell themselves well?
As a little kid, people think it’s cute and adorable when you talk about yourself. But once you go to school, that changes. The band Supertramp’s “Logical song” illustrates this very well. You have to become logical, responsible and above all not talk about yourself too much.
Actually, you are taught to make and keep yourself small. To make yourself disappear. Because standing out is arrogant and before you know it people will think you are cocky. In this society and culture, it is others who are more important than you.
Making yourself small, is that really a good thing?
As a result, you greatly fail yourself in your adult life. You often pull yourself down and you talk about your shortcomings and weaknesses, rather than your strengths. That’s how most people are programmed.
You should be modest, it’s a good thing. At least that’s what you think.
And to a certain extent that is indeed true, but where do you draw the line?
If you are modest during a job interview and another candidate is less modest and demonstrates his or her strengths exuberantly and with flair, chances are very high that you will not be chosen.
Talking about your lesser strengths has another negative effect. And that is that the people you talk to will pretty soon agree with you. Is that what you want? No, of course not! But that’s the consequence of your neat modesty.
Reveal the hidden switch
So how can you successfully sell yourself without coming across as ridiculous, arrogant, or over the top?
Well, you’ll have to create some kind of inner mental switch, where you can quickly switch to an expressive you, saying and doing the right things at the right times.
Think of it as a game. When you create and activate the rules of the game in your subconscious mind, you will automatically play the game with the best chances for yourself by flipping that mental switch. From now on, when you flip your switch, you will feel super confident, you will be relaxed and you will radiate this relaxed and confident feeling in the right way. You will talk with flair about your strengths and why those are good for them.
Others will get a positive feeling from you and soon be left with a wow feeling.
And because everything you say and do comes from within, you come across as authentic, honest, and real. And you are!
This will bring you the results you envisioned.
